Mechel’s Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant has delivered the first batch of 25-meter R65 DT-350 type rails to Moscow Metro. In 2016 the company will supply 4000 tonnes of rails to be used both for new metro construction and maintenance works.
The rails were produced according to the certificate issued to Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant by the Federal Railway Transport Certification Register in June 2015. The products have tested by the Railway Research Institute (JSC VNIIZhT).
Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant’s rails were produced using a technology of heat treatment in an organic polymer solution, which enables the plant to produce rolls with superior wear resistance, durability and endurance limit.
